This is a great way to transform a pair of sweats that may be a bit short or unflattering into track pants. I personally find this style more flattering with running shoes as well…which I wear a lot. You can also do this with sweatpants your littles have started to out grow. These make for great stylish play pants and they don't get dirty and ripped at the hem.
Last sew the inner seam up including the ribbing. I start from the ribbing and gradually met with the original seam. Cut any excess seam allowance.
Great play pants.
